    basically I have a report due tomorrow that cant be hand written or drawn.

    10 pages and it has to include typing obviously, which I could use any word app for. But I also need to be able to draw block diagrams. To give you a better picture i have to design the blueprints and stuff for a room designing project. Along with labelling those block diagrams.

    I have open office, would i be able to do it in that?

    It can be done, just take some work. Use the Shapes tool to draw your boxes and I believe you can also add text inside. I played around with LibreOffice just now and it's workable but you have to jack with the alignment tools to get things right.

    Might be worth taking a look at OmniGraffle. It's not free but you can get a 14 day free trial.

    It's got a lot of stencils you can use and, if it has stencils of use to you, you should be able to get the job done pretty quickly.
